Inspector Charles Tresham

Welcome to the neighbourhood pages for Leigh. The team, based at Leigh Police Station, cover the areas of Atherleigh, Leigh West, Leigh East and Leigh South.

Over the last year we have had great success in tackling drug dealing in the local area, executing a number of warrants, making arrests, seizing drugs and weapons. Recent successes include the arrest of three armed robbers following a recent robbery at a pub and the sentencing of a prolific shoplifter.

We have worked hard to tackle the issues that are important to the local community, such as antisocial behaviour caused by off-road bikes. We have also secured closure orders on addresses where we received a number of complaints about antisocial behaviour.

We will continue to work with the community and our partners to tackle these issues, but as always, the information provided by the residents is invaluable and I would ask you all to continue to report incidents that matter to you.

Please stop and speak with your neighbourhood PCs and PCSOs when they are out and about, they are always happy to stop and talk.

Please contact the team at Leigh Police Station on 0161 856 7225 or e-mail

For non-emergency calls or to report a crime call 101. Use 999 only in emergencies where there is a threat to life or crime in progress.

You can also follow us on social media, on Facebook at GMP Leigh, Atherton and Hindley, or on Twitter @GMPLeigh.
